Disney Cruise Line – What’s Included in Your Cruise

With Disney Cruise Line the Magic is all in the details. It all starts the moment you are announced & applauded when walk onboard & step into the luxurious atrium. Your adventure continues with gourmet dining, interactive kids’ clubs and complimentary soda as well as room service.

Disney Cruise Line is not just a cruise, it’s an experience. All those little extras add up to the most magical vacation of your life.

Disney Dream docked at Castaway Cay

Take a look at what’s included in your Disney Cruise Line vacation

  • Complimentary, themed kid’s clubs brimming with Disney activities and entertainment, and featuring some of the longest operating hours at sea. Sometimes I find it difficult to talk my kids out of the clubs. They love being able to choose the activities that they want to do from the Personal Navigator schedule.
Oceaneer Kids Club on the Disney Wonder
  • Immersive, private clubs for tweens and teens. A great place for teens to connect, unwind & meet new friends.
Edge Tween Club on the Disney Wonder
  • Exclusive adult areas: nighttime entertainment district, adults-only pool and fitness center. If you think Disney is just for kids, think again. All of the ships have great adult areas, beautifully themed bars & entertainment areas and nighttime comedy shows that are dedicated to the adult population onboard.
  • One-of-a-kind Rotational Dining. Rotate through three amazing restaurants with your servers traveling with you to each meal. Each night your dining will be scheduled in one of three fabulously themed restaurants. You will have the opportunity to try all three and your server will follow you learning what you like & catering to your family.
Enchanted Garden Restaurant on The Disney Dream & Disney Fantasy
  • Special moments with Disney Characters. Don’t forget to bring your autograph book and camera!
  • 24-hour complimentary room service. If you want to have breakfast on your private verandah, go ahead. Place on order for room service & relax.
  • Soda, coffee and tea always available on deck at no charge as well as at all of your meals in the dining rooms and the buffet.
  • Broadway-style Disney musicals found only on board. Enjoy shows like Aladdin on the Fantasy, Beauty and the Beast on the Dream, Tangled on the Magic and Frozen on the Wonder are some of the shows that you will find on each ship.
Walt Disney Theater on the Disney Fantasy
  • First-run films at sea, some even in 3D. You will not find a shortage of Disney movies to watch on your cruise & the best part is that there is NO extra charge. The movies that play onboard are the same movies that are playing in the movie theaters. If a movie is premiering the same night that you are on your cruise, you can watch it onobard that night.
  • Themed deck parties for the family, most voyages include fireworks at sea. From pirate nights to exclusive Star Wars & Marvel Day at Sea cruises, there is never a shortage of nighttime entertainment.
Pirate Night Deck Party
  • Spacious staterooms designed especially for families. One of our favorite parts of being on a Disney Cruise is their split bathroom layout (offered in most rooms). We also love that the kids have their own beds with the upper & lower berth set up.
  • Premium dining options included on the menu every night. Although the menu does vary, you will find things like lobster, steak & beef wellington on the dinner menus in the dining rooms.
  • Disney’s Castaway Cay. If your cruise stops at Disney’s private island paradise, you’re in for a real treat. You can have fun in the sun on the beach & eat at one of the two outdoor restaurants & it’s all at no extra cost to you.
Disney’s Castaway Cay Island
  • Legendary Disney service throughout your cruise. Nothing can top the Disney service. They cater to guests making your cruise feel luxurious.
